Why Buy Wood?

Why Buy Wood?

For years, wood has been a material of choice for replacement windows, giving homes a wide assortment of benefits including durability, energy efficiency and long-lasting beauty. If you are in the process of considering a window replacement project in Kelowna and you are still unclear about what windows you would like to see in your home, our experts would be happy to show you why wood windows are one of our most popular replacement window selections at Pella Windows & Doors - Kelowna.

At Pella Windows & Doors - Kelowna, we realize that a concern with wood windows is the amount of maintenance that comes with it. According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value 2017 Report, wood window replacements return 73.0% of the cost of the project upon resale. But the reason why most people switch to wooden windows is the warmth and beauty they can add to any room in your home. Here are a few more reasons why it’s valuable to think about wood windows:

Durability

Pella Windows & Doors - Kelowna sells products that are designed to protect against the elements and provide enduring performance in Kelowna. Pella’s EnduraGuard® wood protection delivers advanced protection against the effects of moisture, decay, stains from mold and mildew. You also have the opportunity to use aluminum- or vinyl-cladding to go the extra mile to help protect your wood from weather damage. These options, plus our wood treatment, makes our wood windows long-lasting against the elements for years to come.

Environmentally Friendly

Wood is a natural insulator. It doesn’t matter what the season or weather is like in Kelowna, wood windows can save you some money on your heating and cooling utility bills—see ENERGY STAR for more information. Wood is also a suitable renewable building option. This can ease your mind knowing that wood is a renewable resource.

Beauty

We’ve said it before, but wood replacement windows are truly a timeless style. Wood windows have been around for hundreds of years adding character to your home; helping your home look warmer and inviting; and seamlessly complementing wood flooring, cabinetry or interior décor that you might already have in your home. Wood windows give you virtually endless possibilities for styles, colors and shapes of window frames, and they can also be painted or stained to match the feel of your home.
